ACT NOW: Thank the Senate for Acting to Protect LGBT Students!

Today Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee, introduced a bill to overhaul the nation’s education system and replace No Child Left Behind. The Senate’s bill includes critical protections for all students, including LGBT youth, with anti-bullying provisions from the Safe Schools Improvement Act (SSIA) and nondiscrimination provisions from the Student Non-Discrimination Act (SNDA), bills GLSEN has been fighting for for years.

Senator Harkin and the HELP Committee needs to hear from you! Send a message to the committee thanking them for including LGBT students in this long overdue legislation, and showing them that we have their backs as the bill moves forward!
